What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where people come together in team like fashion to create projects in a marathon like fashion and usually in competition.
Do I need to bring a team?
No, you can come by yourself and recruit or join a team when you get there.
What can I build?
At Sac Hackapalooza, you can build electronics, robotics projects, and anything mobile or web based that you think you can finish within 32 hours.
What if I don't know how to code or do electronics?
Don't worry we will have workshops and mentors on site to help you learn along the way.
Will food be served?
Yes, we will provide meals and snacks for both days.
Do I have to spend the night?
No, since this is a youth hack. We will ask everyone to go home at 9pm and return at 9 am.
You can work on your projects off site.
